Computational Engineering, Master's Degree Programme

MSc in Computational Engineering makes you eligible for the most demanding and interesting tasks in the private or public sector as an engineer, researcher, or leader. Computational engineers are needed in diverse industries where the domain knowledge of engineering and computational modeling are required.

Data scientists focus on the discovery and interpretation of hidden patterns in data for extracting knowledge and insights from data.

Computational engineers focus on the development and application of mathematical and numerical models to analysis complex and uncertain systems for gaining knowledge and insights into the systems.

The ultimately goal of both data science and computational engineering is to support decision making, but the main emphasis in data science is data whilst the main emphasis in computational engineering is models (including data-driven models).

You will acquire skills that will enable you to analyse complex real world problems, and to use this insight as a foundation for better decisions to for example improve performance, quality, and workflows. The career opportunities are multiple and in a world where digitalization is becoming increasingly important there is a need for candidates with domain knowledge and computational modeling skills. Many companies, including all major oil, service companies, research institutes and many of their spin-off companies seek this competence.
